Which one do you think is better to use? Microsoft Windows or Apple Macintosh?
the endless war.. i think im up with windows ATM, since i've never tried mac. could change my opinion in a second..
Agreed - this is much the same as the 360vsPS3 debate...
Could go on for ever - but more likely to live for a few weeks, dogged by fanboy flaming and then die a premature death, as it is locked by a mod... Im willing to bet Graeme...
The fact is that they do pretty much the same thing equally well; the rest is just down to personal preference and semantics...

No, I won't lock the thread as I'm moderator of the KotOR, Fallout 3 and Introduction section, not General Discussion. But yeah, agreed. ;)
But as to give you my opinion; I remain neutral. I used both Mac OS and Windows and found that either one suits my preferences. Though, if it comes to gaming, I use Windows. Also, Mac OS is mainly at it's best if it comes to visual-/graphic-related stuff.

I think windows is better because I have never tried apple.... (except iPod)....
I prefer Microsoft, personally. I use Mac computers at school, and those have a tendency (Ironically) to crash, not huge Microsoft 'Whole Computer' crashes, but little 'Your Microsoft Word has crashed immediately after you finished typing for 30 minutes but before you saved it' crashes.
Beyond that Mac just seems almost overly simplified to me, I feel like it's insulting my intelligence.
i kind of agree with both dinosaur and graeme- threads like this are more to spark fan boy wars- and i have both macs and windows pc's in my house.. well- macs cost more and do less- they are nice for general office type use- surfing the net or music- and they are less maintenance and maybe more secure- but they have way more video codec problems and they are crap for gamers- unless you like old pong type games civ2 or something.. being a pc gamer.. i have lil use for a mac.. if not for gaming i have no use for a pc at all.. if i stop playing pc games. i for sure will not buy and play games on a console.. so. if you only need to do general office type stuff and do not mind being more limited and do not mind spending more to do so- by all means buy a mac.. be happy and brag you spent more and can say your mac is more secure than a windows pc.. that is maybe the only thing it has ups on a windows pc.. well the only thing really- i do like how all the macs in the house network easy.. that is a plus.. also you have less upgrade or mod options with macs. some 90% of all of the pc world is windows related.. so its comical to even compare macs to windows pc's. windows pc's win hands down.. take care.. see ya..
our mid and high schools was using macs- they the school system seen the light- they seen the macs cost more- the macs had less options. and 90% of all the computing on earth is windows.. so they thought about it and said- windows pc's cost less- i think they use dells now- and we can educate our kids to use the operating system some 90% of the earth uses- windows.. it was more to the side of ignorant to have been using macs.. well- they came around to good sound common sense thinking.. all is better now- the kids get a education on a os that will more assist them in life.. that os is windows.. see ya..
see - that is a fallacy, right there, what you said...
apple computers are just as susceptible to virus attack and are just as secure as other PCs... Seriously - the difference is that the cock munching hairy backed grease ball fuck tards that write viruses actually want them to do some harm (or actually farm some personal data etc...)
To do this the virus has to infect other computers...
Now - as 80 - 90% of all computers run Windows (in one guise or another) the viruses are aimed at and written specifically to attack Windows / Explorer / other Micro$oft software... The same viruses are not coded to do anything to OSX or what ever the fuck Apple runs these days...
This has given rise to the Modern Legend that Apples are more secure. Lies. All of it.
Feel me. Do I feel pretty?

I think this will go into a flame war, so...
Locking before the flame war.
